Navdeep Saini helps injured Jadeja to peel a banana

Ravindra Jadeja was recently hit on his left thumb by Mitchell Starc with a bouncer in the first innings. He was taken off the field and went to the hospital for undergoing scan.

It was later revealed that he had suffered a fracture in his thumb which kept him away from bowling in the second innings of the Aussies.

But, while India’s second innings was underway the left-hander seen all padded up to bat if needed for India and was seated in the dressing room waiting for his chance to come.

As mentioned having an injury in his left thumb, Jadeja had already worn the batting glove while his right hand did not have gloves on. When the refreshments came in the Indian camp, he picked up a banana.

But having the injury, he could not peel it off as his left-hand was in a glove. It was his fellow teammate and pacer, Navdeep Saini who was sitting beside him helped him in peeling off the banana and displayed a great teamwork.

This little incident marks a brilliant display of teamwork, also showcases the significance of teamwork in a sport and the way teammates have their back for each other during tough times.
